What causes psoriasis?

Psoriasis can appear on the face and body, and often runs in families with people genetically predisposed to this skin condition. It is also regarded as an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells. This leads to an accelerated skin cell production cycle, causing the rapid buildup of cells on the skin's surface, which form the characteristic scales and red patches. Various lifestyle factors, including stress, diet and hormonal changes can also trigger or worsen psoriasis flare-ups.

How to soothe psoriasis skin?

To help soothe psoriasis on the face, look for gentle, soothing natural skincare formulas. Ingredients like prebiotic inulin, chamomile and natural plant oils help to strengthen the skin barrier and support the lipidic layers of the skin, delivering vital nutrients.

You can take comfort knowing that our By Sarah skincare range is Dermatologically Tested, suitable for sensitive skin and formulated without any ingredients known to cause irritation; free from all fragrance and essential oils.

What skincare products are suitable for psoriasis?

Look for non-irritating, fragrance-free formulas that are made for sensitive skin. Choose a gentle cream cleanser to wash psoriasis skin, such as our Balancer Cream Cleanser, that efficiently removes any makeup, dirt, pollution and sunscreen that may have built up but also leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft and hydrated.

Whether you’re prone to flare ups, have been on steroid or paraffin based creams for a long time or are just coming off them, most mainstream moisturisers out there will be too strong for your weakened skin barrier. A good psoriasis cream for the face? Look for clinically-proven formulas with hydrating actives, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, like our Maven Daily Moisturiser that provides deep, long-lasting hydration and repairs the skin barrier, for a complexion that is calm, comfortable and radiant.

Finally, to further moisturise psoriasis skin, add a facial oil to your daily skincare routine after moisturising to strengthen skin barrier function. Our fragrance-free, multi award-winning Hero Facial Oil leaves skin looking and feeling radiant, no matter how sensitive or stressed your skin is feeling.
